on india? we have the economy growing 6.1% in the june quarter. how sustainable is it once this sort of stimulus kind of wears off? >> well, it seems that, you know, all those countries that have been hit much harder than the u.s. itself, the u.s. was the epicenter of the crisis, but all the asia countries have been hit much harder and have fallen down further. so they rebound also in a stronger fashion. i think this is just a rebound of, you know, looking like more recovery potential. but i think, you know, as the u.s. is also picking up speed now in the third quarter. we should be quite a sustainable recovery across asia. >> yeah. we also have in japan, of course, a new government in place. we also have mixed data coming out, japan today. we have industrial output better than expected growing 1.9% in july, but retail sales also falling in july, as well. how do you think all of this is going to weigh on the bank of japan? >> well, we think that the bank of japan is going to keep the monetary policy for a considerable period of time. but certainly what we are now seeing is at least i
sence and international competitiveness. it's a rearview mirror argument. china and india are cominup fast, we are aad of them, but our gas is running out and they have a rocket engineá we're not always going to be the world leaders in science. there's definitely a lot of data to support that concern. the answer is let's keyuate more scientists. and you heard that aot but less heard is this incredible fact. we're not creating opportunities at home for our talent either. only 7% of age 35 and under can expect to get tenture track facility positions. the rest need to take their scientific skills into history or into teaching, media if there's any positions left, somethg else. something where they can actually given their knowledge and backgrounds they can do a lot thelp connect science with the rest of society. so our argument in the book is coul't we kill two birds with one stone, couldn't we create new vows in what's cled the science pipeline for the young sciences who want to become a group of experts in outreach to the rest of america. coulde create jobs for theto do s nonprofit jo
medicine. last week after working for years only with the generic drug companies principally in india and south africa, we announced our first big agreement with a large pharmaceutical company, pfizer, the biggest of all, has agreed to work with us to cut the price by 60% of the only drug we know that is affected at treating tubular chlorosis with people who have had aids for a long time. in other cases, all this medicine almost makes the conditions were spread half a million people die from this disease who have aids. the interactions of the madison and the t.b. medicine is often not good. the fact that they were willing to cut the price 60% will save a couple hundred thousand lives a year within two years. that is answering the how question. we tried to do the same thing in climate change where we are working with 40 cities around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by retrofitting public housing, or big public buildings, or changing the street lights, or putting in new led streetlights in los angeles, or making ports more efficient, are working on better public transportat
-- the manufacturing jobs that were in america and were moved to countries like india and china. i think that they are experiencing an industrial revolution much like what we saw in the 20th-century. i think that they are developing a middle-class while we are losing our middleclass. i also think that for an economy to do well, there has to be a strong middle-class. that is indicative when you look at consumer spending indexes. we just don't have the money. we don't have the dollars because we don't have manufacturing jobs that developed are middle-class. guest: that is exactly right. that is the essence of the book, which is that china and india have replicated the success in developing this industrialized economy. by opening of their labor force to more exploitation, it does speak to the myth of gdp. you have a growth but poverty grows at the same time. the loss of manufacturing jobs is really such a central element to both this recession and the declining living standards in terms of the exploitation of people, but declining marriage rates, unraveling of our society and many other cou

[applause] we have representatives from different embassies, as well. let me begin this morning by introducing our special guest, dr. christina romer. as many of you may know, she is the chair of the council of economic advisers. that position was established by the employment act of 1946 where it was decided that the president of united states needed independent, objective economic analysis and advice. from the time that the council was greeted the late 40's, it has had some of the most distinguished economists serving in that position. it has had a long history of very distinguished economists and dr. romer is within the tradition. she is what the best known economists in the country and one of the best known macro economist in the country. she served for 20 years as a member of the faculty of the university of california, berkeley. in that position, she became an expert on the depression, the causes and consequences, and how the u.s. government responded. she ca
to call this glass new. it goes back to the origins of world trade to the east india company and hudson bay company. there is nothing particularly new to be a fruitless soldier and diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman for decades ibm employees have said the initial stand for i have been moved. what is new, the relos themselves, the breadwinners -- i will start -- what is new is growth in numbers of corporate relos, a figure i estimate to be about 10 million people, that is the breadwinners themselves and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade to cite a statistical the goods and services we buy and sell abroad has leaped from about $400 million in 1970 to over 3 trillion now as companies american and foreign compete. they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you've not heard the word reloville because i made it up. it is about workers and families frequently relocating, they are see real long-distance movers. the word relos originated among agents who specialize in catering to them. relo

and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic to filament in a period of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a safe prosperous and free future we need to create the most productive most creative most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear. i believe if you set out and say well what maximize their are ways to do that. you said what maximize the number of small businesses created by small business there are ways to do that. if you said how can i have the most continuous process of innovation we know how to it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future which is high techs, bigger shocker c and politicians entered. so, long term we're going to need budgetary reform legislation. it's interesting the last congress more than a dozen bills introduced to establish entitlement and budget commission's but if all the legislation did was have the same old conversation within the same old frame work you in fact wouldn't achieve very much. you end up with a com
wonder because they are on the other side of pakistan. it would be a good strategic movement if india made the move towards bin laden, if he is still alive. another question, perhaps we are already monitoring bin laden? perhaps our intelligence has him on the phone all the time? could that be possible? guest: i wish it were, but it would speak to some kind of nefarious plot. if he were on the phone and we have not killed him. if we are listening to him on the phone we can geo-locate him and he would be yesterday's news. so, i seriously doubt we're listening to him. secondly, part of the problem we have in afghanistan is we have already allowed a large indian presence, both economically, and they are doing a lot of construction with people dressed as civilians but who are really military engineers. people in the u.s. do not realize the degree of paranoia between two nuclear-armed countries, pakistan and india. to allow an indian military forces into pakistan would turn the pakistan knees entirely away from us. -- the pakistanis away from us. it is interesting as an idea, but in the lon
